Disney Features Inclusive Costumes For Halloween 2021

Disney has added adaptive role-play costumes to its lineup, including wheelchair cover sets, to an assortment that launched last year.
The launch is part of Disney’s commitment to inclusivity and meeting the needs of children who face physical challenges.
“I’m thrilled that through the expansion of our adaptive roleplay collection, we can further connect our iconic franchises with fans and families worldwide through thoughtful design that allows everyone to take part in their favorite stories and worlds—from Marvel Studios ‘Black Panther’ to ‘Star Wars: The Mandalorian,’” says Stephanie Young, president, consumer products, games and publishing, Disney. “With today’s announcement, we’re better able to meet the needs of more of our Guests, and we’re excited to see this inspired collection continue to grow.”

Disney worked with the costume company Disguise to create Disney Princess and Pixar characters last year, and followed up for 2021 with new items that include Marvel Studios’ Black Panther, Star Wars: The Mandalorian costume,  and a  Star Wars: The Mandalorian wheelchair cover set.

The 2021 Halloween assortment includes costumes inspired by new releases like Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon and Marvel Studios’ Wanda Vision as well as Halloween classics like Hocus Pocus, Haunted Mansion and Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, various Disney Villains, and a slate of Marvel heroes.

The cleverly designed wheelchair sets include items like The Mandalorian’s spaceship, or the famous pumpkin carriage from Cinderella. These adaptive products allow those who use wheelchairs to transform into their favorite characters for Halloween. 

The lineup of new costumes can be seen on ShopDisney.com as part of a large Halloween lineup for this year, which includes costumes for pets as well.

Adaptive Halloween costumes from Disney and partner Disguise are made with special material and accessibility features, and even include innovative wheelchair covers.

Disney says the costumes are specially designed for ease of use and access. For example, all the adaptive costumes are made with a stretch fabric that opens in the back to allow for more accessible dressing, and they typically have longer inseams for wheelchair-friendly wear.

The costumes also have flap openings on the front center with self-stick fabric closure to accommodate tube access. The wheelchair cover sets fit most standard wheelchairs with 24-inch wheels and come with supportive plastic piping pieces for added stability and long self-stick fabric strips to help keep the pieces in place. 

The Disney Halloween collection and more can be found on ShopDisney.com or at Disney Parks and Resorts for select items.
